ROCK IF ERR Y. GIRL RESCUED FROM SLAVERY.—There is now on her way home to this country from America, Emma. Davies, a girl of thirteen, whose parents reside iu Cl^ de-street, Rock Ferry. Four years ago she was taken out to California by a Mr. and Mrs. Edwatd Stubbs, who said they would bring Emma up as one of their own children. Mrs. Stubbs corresponded for some time with the girl's parents, but this ceased about two years ago. Then the parents took all possible means through the Foreign Office and otherwise of demanding the girl's return, but Mrs. Stubbs said she would not release the girl until the law compelled her. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children in San Francisco took the matter up, and the facts were laid before Sir Elliott Lees, the member for Birkenhead, who communicated with the Foreign Office. Eventually the where- abouts of the girl was discovered, and it was ascertained that she had not only to do all the housework, but had to work in the vineyard with male labourers, and had been savagely beaten. She was rescued, and is now on her way home. She told a pitiful tale of her treatment, and said that she had never been to school, and when she asked about her father and mother was told they were dead. Letters written home purporting to be from her were forgeries, and letters from home were never delivered to her. She was beaten with a stick evey day and treated like a slave.
